Padre Pico Street
Padre Pico Street is one of the more picturesque places of the Heroic City of Santiago of Cuba (Ciudad Héroe de Santiago de Cuba) located in the city’s centre. It was first named Cuesta de Amuedo, later on as Hospital Street and then Loma de Corpacho.
This unique street in Santiago adopted its current name in 1942 in honour of the priest Bernardo del Pico (1726-1813) a man who dedicated his life to practicing good, helping the poor, attending to the sick, protecting the homeless and who left his wealth to the construction of a beneficial society.
